Research Lab: Profile

By means of its Research Lab, a.r.t.e.s. promotes the immediate transition from doctoral studies to a more advanced academic career. The Research Lab consists of two post-doctoral junior research groups, each of which is supervised and advised by a professor. These conduct research into academic history and theory as well as aspects of anthropology and the life sciences. With its new disciplinary foci, the Research Lab not only enriches the research landscape at the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School, but also helps extend the range of interdisciplinary investigations being undertaken within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

The work at the a.r.t.e.s. Research Lab is concentrated in two groups, namely 'Transformations of Knowledge' and 'Transformations of Life'. In line with the basic objective of the a.r.t.e.s. Graduate School, the Research Lab promotes an interdisciplinary approach in the humanities, thus extending the academic dialogue beyond the borders of the specific subject.

Working within this context, the various Research Lab scholars develop their own, individual research projects. Using a joint event approach, a lively exchange is maintained with international academic networks and contacts are continually extended.
